Ethics and Law for School Psychologists by Susan Jacob-Timm

Ethics and Law for School Psychologists, Third Edition covers a host of ethical and legal issues that are unique to the field, including psychoeducational assessment and intervention: schooling for students with special needs; and students' and parents' rights to privacy, consent, and confidentiality. Offering a wealth of new information and added features, this book reviews recent changes in professional standards such as the 1997 revision of the National Association of School Psychologists' "Principles for Professional Ethics" and "Standards for the Delivery of School Psychological Services." It examines the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, as well as recent developments in special-education case law, and presents an overview of the Goals 2000: Educate America Act, the Improving America's Schools Act, and the School-to-Work Opportunity Act.
